AARC is the leading U.S. organization protecting the rights of featured artists and sound recording copyright owners in the areas of hometaping and rental rights. Although a US organization, AARC represents artists and record companies worldwide. Representing its members both domestically and abroad, AARC ensures that they are properly compensated for the rental and hometaping of their sound recordings. AARC was created in 1993 by the U.S. music industry, shortly after the passage of the U.S. hometaping law, the Audio Home Recording Act of 1992. Overseen by a board of thirteen artist and thirteen record company representatives, AARC provides equal representation to the artist community and recording industry, looking after their mutual interests. AARC currently represents nearly 200,000 artists and record labels. AARC is headquartered in Alexandria, VA, which is in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
